Another peak in production
In order to exploit the potential of Industry 4.0, machines and systems must communicate smoothly with each other. The basis for this is a common language - mechanical engineering relies on OPC UA as an open and manufacturer-independent standard.
The EC directives (NAWID, MID), laws (MessEG), ordinances (MessEV) and standards (EN 45501) relevant for weighing instruments expressly permit the exclusive display of the mandatory data Max (maximum load), Min (minimum load), e (calibration value) and d (scale interval) for d ≠ e on the display.
The forum offers an extensive programme of lectures on innovations in the fields of machining and clamping technology, measuring and testing technology, research and digital services.
Production with new peak value
Record level of the previous year cannot be maintained
Medium-sized - globally positioned. With an export volume of € 3.7 billion in 2018, almost a third of the worldwide trade volume in measuring and testing technology comes from German production.
Production again at record level
Weighing instruments subject to legal verification must have a certificate of compatibility which confirms that the weighing modules used match.
